Always liked Trufant. I think he was undervalued by many of the fans the past season. I wish him nothing but the best in Jacksonville

Congrats to him. Hopefully he makes the final 53. He can get you to the ground, tackling was never a weak point for him. That back problem he has though is going to be the one thing that probably derails his attempt at extending his career. Gus should think about moving him to safety.

Trufant is really underappreciated on here, IMO. Great player, teammate, and part of the Seattle community. Hope he does well in Jacksonville. Would be nice to see him retire as a Seahawk on a 1-Day contract.

Trufant is not underappreciated on here - historically. Any decent Seahawks fan knows how good he has been for us, and how professional he has been. What people have noticed is how he has slowed down a bit the last few seasons, mostly just getting older.

I love Tru...one of my all time favorite Hawks. But he's not the same player anymore, clearly. It happens to the best of em.

A agree wholeheartedly. Great story, stayed in WA his whole career.

On being not appreciated, not so much agreement. I have heard folks say stuff, but I bet even Russell made somebody mad at one time. Wait...

The best part of this is that chances are very good all three Trufant brothers will get to play in the same season. Has that ever happened?



I think the Harmon brothers (Ronnie, Kevin, Derrick) came close, but pretty sure Derrick was out of the league a year before Kevin came to the Hawks.

Bye Marcus, thanks for the memories. One I remember was him flying down the sideline with an INT for a TD in the Wash. playoff game 2007.

I'm happy he gets to keep his career going. Obviously, there just wasn't a spot left for him here, but he isn't that old (32). Jacksonville is a good place for him to go. He can mentor the young secondary that Gus is developing.

:13: somehow though, I doubt he will make their 53 man roster,...losing a step or two, plus back issues,...he has to rely on veteran smarts to play now,...I kind of wish he would have just retired,...anyway, good luck to you Marcus.

Before the back injury, there was a good stretch of 3-4 years where you could make the case Trufant was the most dangerous guy on the whole team with the ball in his hands. Think he only wound up with 2-3 TD's in his career, but any INT he got where there was some space to work with, he always came within a few hairs of breaking it - very Golden Tate-ish. I've always thought that if Holmgren had taken some chances and used him on PR or some trick O plays, he could've really been electric.

Who else we going to lose?

I'll admit, I didn't like him ever really. Although he wasn't a Ruskell pick.......he reminds me of the Ruskell era. Just my opinion, please don't get your panties in a bunch. I want to forget that time.

He was great in the community, but thought he never lived up to expectations on the field.

Thanks for everything Tru! Not the best CB ive seen but he had a couple great seasons and always gave full effort.

Best of luck this season in Jacksonville and retirement. Hope ur younger brothers do well except against the Seahawks!

Glad Gus game him at least one more season.

Trufant was one one of my all-time favorites. Was hoping he'd retire a Hawk. Glad I got his autograph at VMAC last year.

One of my favourite Seahawks, would have liked him to retire as a 'Hawk but hope he is a success at his new team - he has 2 TD's from interceptions and he is that brilliant one vs Washington

And then there were none.

With Trufants signing and the earlier designation of Hills number to Avril the last of the 2005 XL Seahawks is gone. In fact at present there are only 4 players on the 91 man roster who were not picked by this regime.

Thanks for you service Marcus you will always be a Seahawk to me.

Man, that's what having a bulldozer collapsing the pocket does for your secondary... what a play... it's what we were missing last year and hoping we have on a consistant basis this year.

Oh ya, so long Marcus. Always a fan.

I never would have guessed.

Good for him. His chances of making this roster were slim at best. There he has a chance to play and teach.

Is Bradley going to run our system? People always say Bradleys system and the Leo but we know its Petes. Is he taking it or we don't know?

I think he'll be a great asset to a franchise on the rebuild.

Best wishes, Tru and thanks for all the memories.

Don't forget to come back and retire here, though.

Does Trufant make the Ring? I would say no, but its very close.

I am happy the guy gets to keep playing, one of our all time best DBs!

This is the first year since '99 that Truf hasn't been playing CB for my teams.

Fair winds and following seas, Tru! Hell of a player for us over the years. People say he's washed up, but I think a lot of that is caused by extra scrutiny on a very good defense. And I'd think he might just be an upgrade on a very bad Jacksonville team.

Tru was only good maybe 3 yrs other than that he lets the WR catch the ball and gets a tackle. He is a Jag now. Why is this not moved to the NFL forum. I have seen stuffed moved for less.

I've worn Trufant's jersey proudly for a decade+. I have 5 of 'em. He has been a cornerstone for a long time, both on and off the field. I am sad to see him go.

Best wishes Tru.

The Jags have a ton of rookies in the DB department they need a vet with a work ethic. Tru can teach them to be pros.

Could be he knows a Seattle weak link could be a Jacksonville strong suit. Comparatively, anyway.


His value these days lies in his experience. He made a wonderful mentor for our young DB's, and I'm sure Bradley likely wants him to do the same for Jacksonville.

A good move for everyone. I hope Truf plays his best football in Jags. "I'm a Seahawk man". If, and when, we dont re-sign Leroy Hill, there will be no players left from the 2005 super bowl team?

I'll admit, I didn't like him ever really. Although he wasn't a Ruskell pick.......he reminds me of the Ruskell era. Just my opinion, please don't get your panties in a bunch. I want to forget that time.

He was great in the community, but thought he never lived up to expectations on the field.


This post reaks of jumping to conclusions based upon a lack of Seahawk knowledge and an unwillingness to learn.

One very important job of a slot corner is stopping the run, and he's above average at that, so he should add to the competition at that spot in Jax. Heck, at that position, he might even be an upgrade for them.

Tru was only good maybe 3 yrs other than that he lets the WR catch the ball and gets a tackle. He is a Jag now. Why is this not moved to the NFL forum. I have seen stuffed moved for less.


:roll: Maybe you can apply for the next open mod position.

Please explain why you feel Im jumping to conclusions based on lack of knowledge. Im struggling to see how you would pull all that from an opinion but Im more than willing to dig a little deeper into reasoning behind my own opinions.

I guess I expect more than you do out of the 11th overall pick in a draft. He had one good season (was selected as and All-Pro and made it to the Pro Bowl).... I expect more than one All-Pro selection and one Pro Bowl .... ya he was a long term Seahawk but he was never elite (some may argue his All-Pro season). Do I love what he did outside of football....hell ya, great guy.

When someone disagrees with your opinion it doesn't mean they lack knowledge....just means they have a different perspective then you do. Maybe you are a Coug that lived in Tacoma and love the Trufants...that guy loves Trufant. Doesn't mean something reaks....bruh.

Bye Marcus, thanks for the memories. One I remember was him flying down the sideline with an INT for a TD in the Wash. playoff game 2007.


Hell yea. I was in Shanghai, China wearing my Trufant jersey watching this game at a bar going nuts. I will always have a man crush on Tru.

I am still going to yell TRUUUU as he comes out on the field even if he is in a Jags uniform. That said, I am bummed he is going to get shredded by our wideouts.
